Lawyers in the field of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology

Many different researchers agree that the emergence of blockchain technology is the most important event since the Internet.

Blockchain technologies provide a high level of transaction security in an untrusted environment without intermediaries and expensive transaction costs; reliability, validity, and immutability of data, which are distributed among independent participants and do not have a single point of failure; transparency and speed of operations.

Blockchain technology can potentially be implemented in any field of activity related to the transfer and storage of information, data registers, accounting and transfer of assets, rights (financial, tangible or intangible, cryptocurrencies), digital identification, tokenization of assets, creation of new types of decentralized autonomous companies (DAO, DeFI), the introduction of business in automatic mode with the help of “smart contracts”, the creation of NFTs and entire metauniverses, and all this without geographical restrictions.

However, each new technology opens up new opportunities and carries new risks: financial, technological, legal, etc.

Blockchain business –technologies and cryptocurrencies most of the time work in a legal vacuum or regulatory uncertainty, which forces you to constantly be aware of all legislative changes and adapt to the regulatory policy of the state.

Because technologies will continue daily changing entire industries and forcing a rethinking of business strategies, the role of lawyers in the field of blockchain is becoming increasingly important.

Just as theory is useless without practice, and practice without theory is incomplete, technological and crypto-projects are incomplete, and sometimes even useless, without the qualified support of blockchain lawyers.

In this article, we will consider who blockchain lawyers are, in which areas they specialize, and how they can help businesses in the field of blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
